Salmon is one of my favorite meals to prepare. I’ll admit that while in Georgia visiting my parents, I haven’t cooked much. I’m spoiled, I know. 🙂 So, I thought I could give my mom a break from the kitchen at least for a day and decided to make my salmon recipe for dinner.
First, I lined a baking sheet with foil paper, sprayed it with olive oil and set aside. Then I rinsed the salmon with cold water, seasoned with parsley, rosemary garlic and red pepper flakes.
Chicken wings are a must have here at home. They’re super easy to make, so I make them about once a month. And they don’t need to be thawed out which is great. If I haven’t decided what to make for dinner on any given day, I can take these out of the freezer and have them ready in under an hour.
While browsing around Pinterest I found this Cajun Chicken Wings recipe and decided to give it a try. It was delicious by the way.
Being a Latina, I obviously grew up on arroz con pollo, flan, and empanadas; just to name a few. While my mother taught me to make flour empanadas from scratch, sometimes you want to take the quick route.
Using Goya’s discos para empanadas, allowed me to make something tasty while savoring flavors that took me all the way back home to Panama.
It’s taco Tuesday! And while this is NOT a taco recipe, it’s the same cuisine so keep scrolling. 😛 Last week, I made these super easy and delicious burrito bowls, they didn’t require much effort at all.
If you follow me on Instagram, you got a sneak peek on my stories. And because a promise is a promise, I am sharing the recipe below.
Rice and Chicken
First, I made about a cup and a half of rice. While the rice was cooking, I seasoned three chicken breasts with a little bit of adobo, minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Once cooked, I chopped each breast, added a bit of cilantro and set aside.
Making lobster tails? That was a definite first. Really, how many people think the lobster is a fancy meal?! I’m raising my hand on this one! It’s like steak; a special occasion meal.
Quite frankly, I never thought that lobster was affordable enough for me to buy and make at home. But while shopping I noticed the promotional price on the lobster tails; and I had to buy some.
I’ll confess that I got ahead of myself and bought the tails without having a plan on how to prepare them, but making them wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be.
Cutting the lobsters tails
Cut through the top part of the tail with kitchen scissors. Then flip and crack the ribs through the bottom to open up the shell and loosen up the meat.
